Went with my nephew who had never been to a salmon run.. he was just blown away by the noise coming from the seagulls and eagles. There were hundreds of dead salmon on the shore and a lot still spawning right in front of us.

I loved walking around the Goldstream provincial park, but it was so difficult to get in. We were stopped at the gates trying to get into the park and told that it was closed due to "public safety". We were given a direction on how...More

I repeat it’s a must :) there’s an old train tracks up in the mountain that you can cross (this is not for the weak hearted and not for the people who are afraid of heights.

Easy to find. Great for camping, but also for Day visits. No park fee. We did a very short walk to a water fall but would have loved to stayed longer. Clean toilets, and Well managed park.

This beautiful park has a salmon stream. We were there about a month too soon to experience the spawning event in October. If you visit British Columbia, Victoria, find out where Goldstream Provential Park is located and treat yourself to beautiful walk in the woods....More

The falls are nice, the whole area was pretty dry in Summertime, so i guess it used to be bigger... The tressle is also worth the hike, unfortunately many people come there to take photos. We met there 3 instagram-queens which occupied the whole bridge......More

I think you have to call them directly for these details because things might be different this year being the 150th. Busy place and really very popular spot.

You should take your son to the BC Provicial Museum in Victoria BC while you are there. And by the way - you are only in Vancouver for 4 days. Victoria and Tofino are on Vancouver island a 3 hour ferry ride away.

Just curious, are you worried about driving in Victoria? I wouldn't be, it isn't a very big city, and when we went for the first time last year we found it very easy to get around. There are several public parking lots in the downtown area that were pretty easy to get in and out of, and then we could walk around from there.

Where to stay in Victoria for low budget motel/hotel (5 Replies)
We are driving to Victoria from Oregon and plan to split our time between camping and then a couple nights at a motel in mid August. We'd probably do the motel sometime between Sun and Weds to try to get lower rates. We're looking for something fairly low cost, yet do not want a noisy place or a 'dump.' We do need a decent bed due to back problems, and would prefer a kitchenette to limit our need for eating out, Any suggestions are welcomed... Also- any suggestions for tent camping? (car...More
